What factors are considered when making scholarship awards?

 

Although we cannot use it as the only criteria, Arizona Tuition Connection puts a high priority on the intentions of the person who made the donation.   Therefore, students of any income bracket are eligible to receive tuition tax credit scholarships, and families who receive more dollars donated in their name will often receive larger scholarships.

Other factors we use when awarding scholarships are, the income of the family, the school the student is attending and if the family is participating in some of the programs we offer.

It is important to realize that not every student is eligible to receive every type of scholarship.    Please see the general guidelines for awarding scholarships below.

A SCHOOL TUITION ORGANIZATION CANNOT AWARD, RESTRICT OR RESERVE SCHOLARSHIPS SOLELY ON THE BASIS OF A DONOR’S RECOMMENDATION. A TAXPAYER MAY NOT CLAIM A TAX CREDIT IF THE TAXPAYER AGREES TO SWAP DONATIONS WITH ANOTHER TAXPAYER TO BENEFIT EITHER TAXPAYER’S OWN DEPENDENT.
